Prints well but WiFi-direct is a nightmare

Summary: When I am printing directly from my computer over the USB it works fine. Pages come out quickly and are sharp. But recently my computer had to go to the shop so I have print from an Android phone or tablet. With my laptop from work I was able to connect to the printer's web interface and enable Wi-Fi direct. This printer shows up as an access point when I go to android Wi-Fi settings, but it can't be used as an access point. You need to connect to it with Wi-Fi direct.
Summary: Had another HP laser jet printer and it lasted 6 years out in 110 degree phoenix heat. The 1102w toner cartridge lasted about 4 months. Replaced it, that that toner cartridge lasted 2 months. The 1102w network connection never worked correctly. I have a epson inkjet and the epson wireless network works almost always correctly.
Summary: I've purchased at least one of these before for printing checks. It lasted around 2 years, and at the price it's not really worth fixing, you just buy a new one. Bought mine for around $125 each time....
Summary: The setup for making this printer work via Airprint with the Macintosh perfectly encapsulates what troubles me most about the PC vs. Mac user experience. This HP product must be MADE to work as advertised. It took a few google searches, a firmware update, a youtube video and three HP user forum threads to get this product to work. Ridiculous. Why is there NO setup guide for getting this printer on a wireless network included with the product?
Summary: Updating the below review because I finally found a fix to my wireless problem. I changed the wireless security setting on my wifi router to use "WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES]" instead of "WPA2-PSK". WOW, I guess the printer has a problem with the newer version of WPA2. Now it continues to be available even after it goes into powersave mode. Too bad that HP has not posted this solution on their support forums.
Summary: Purchased this since I need an easy feed for my online selling business -- packing slips and package labels, worked ok for my needs in beginning. Missing areas no matter which toner cartridge I used, so returned unit. Received a 'free' replacement from HP, which works worse than the original. It jams easily, still skips areas, and paper often feeds in crooked. Will soon just purchase another printer.
Summary: I needed a printer that would also make copies from a hard copy. This printer copies only from the computer, so I returned it as soon as I realized this. Overstock.com was very gracious and accommodating, and I was able to return it because I hadn't set it up nor used it. I have purchased many items from Overstock the past few years, and I have never been disappointed with the quality or function. This was the first time I returned a product, and it was so easy.
Summary: It does what it said... kind of. I try setting up the wireless for my mac, and i still can't figure it out. Some guy even wrote a step by step play on Amazon review, and i still cant figure it out. However that review was like two years ago do you know how much Apple like making their customers buy and up grade our computers. Lots!!! Other then that it works great. I was willing to sacrifice the two-sided printing for the wireless.
Summary: Its an OK printer. However if you have more then one wireless laptop this product becomes a problem it will fight for an IP so you will be able to print. My Net-gear router/modem really has trouble connecting with this printer wireless. So I would only recommended this printer if this is your only wireless device. I have 5 wireless device which gives me a head headache.
